Brinks Indoor Camera Closeup

The Brinks Home Indoor Camera is a professionally monitored camera, but that doesn’t mean that it’s being used to spy on its users. In fact, it’s the opposite. It doesn’t store video footage or audio when there’s no legitimate security threat, and the professional monitoring station only sees the camera’s footage when there’s an alarm. Brinks also doesn’t collect more data than necessary from its subscribers, but we’ve deducted points because they share some of the data they collect with third parties.
